Thirteen years since his multi-million bestseller The Book Thief, Markus Zusak joins us for his first Book Festival appearance with his much-anticipated follow-up, Bridge of Clay. In a conversation with author and presenter Janet Ellis, Zusak discusses his ambitious portrait of a family, introducing us to the Dunbar brothers, who are living and fighting in a house with no parents, and no rules. To find peace and beauty, one brother, Clay, sets out to build a bridge, unaware of the secrets he will uncover.
